Ooh wee, that boy remind me of a young Martin Luther
this is actually about Martin Luther of the Roman Catholic European Church in the 1500s. (not Martin Luther King")
Martin Luther caused much conflict and controversy in the Church when he declared that salvation would be granted on the basis of faith alone rather than by good works.
Some felt he was trying to corrupt the church, especially when he wrote and posted his 95 Theses on the door of the Catholic Church. He was excommunicated and stayed very quiet until years later, when the Bible was finally published in English for all to interpret on their own accord. Instead of being taught through Latin only from selected priests.
